NCP hits back at Rahul over price rise issue

New Delhi: The NCP on Wednesday hit back at Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi for holding coalition politics responsible for price rise, saying it was an injustice to blame Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar alone for the issue.

"I do not agree with his opinion….This is injustice to anyone because this is the responsibility of the entire government," NCP general secretary Tariq Anwar said.

He was reacting to Rahul Gandhi`s contention that price rise was the result of coalition politics, a remark construed as a reference to Pawar. Congress had earlier also made oblique attacks on Pawar for price rise.

Anwar, a senior leader from Bihar, also reminded Congress of its poor show in the state where Rahul Gandhi had led the party campaign.

"I think Congress should understand what is the ground reality. After the Bihar election, where does Congress stand, Congress should understand.
